Since bra shopping (including buying a sports bra) is typically met with the same enthusiasm as flossing your teeth — they’re an item you need, but can either be waaaaaay too expensive or just plain hard to find your fit. But when it comes to a sports bra that is comfortable, supportive and looks damn cute, this new collection from Canadian retailer Hyba checks all the boxes.
Whether you’re going with a low-impact yoga-friendly bra or a supportive number that will keep the girls in place while you’re doing dreaded burpees, you’ll find a style that fits your budget in this line: the price range starts at $30 and goes up to $55 for their most technical bra. Every bra in the line is made of moisture-wicking fabric and strategic venting, along with a range of moulded cups (there’s even an option with underwire). The majority of the straps are a racerback style that offers maximum ease of movement and boast anti-chafing fastens.
The size range is amazing
Aiming to server the petite customer at size XXS (around a 30-A cup) up to 2X (around a 42-DD), the collection focuses on compression (minimizing the ‘bounce’ during your workouts) as well as cradling the breast so they are separated and not smooshed together. With the high-impact styles, the bras offer a wide band around the torso to stay comfortably in place.
There’s no hideous beige offering
You’re wearing a rad workout tank but your bra still looks like it’s stolen from Nona’s top drawer. One of the best things about this collection is that it consists of vibrant colours, prints and basic black — zero old-lady colour offerings. Regardless of whether your sports bra will ever been seen by anyone, a colour you actually like is key.
